Singh Vs. State of U.P. & Ors  INSC 206 (20 February 1997)
RAMASWAMY, S. SAGHIR AHMAD
O R D
This appeal by special leave arises from the judgment dated 17th November, 1983 of the judgment passed by the Allahabad
High Court in W.P. No. 2869 of 1983 etc. W.P. 2880 of 1983 having been filed by
the appellant herein.
bench of the High Court by order dated November 17, 1983 dismissed all the writ
petitions Subsequently, pending appeals, the Government had decided by
proceedings dated December 1, 1984 to sanction the creation of 1300
supernumerary post of civil police in the pay scale of Rs. 515-860/- and that
"only those officiating Sub- Inspector will be absorbed on these posts who
have officiated on the posts of Sub-Inspector for three years or more till 30th
September, 1984". This Court on 19th April, 1985 while disposing of the
C.A. no. 8820 of 1983 and batch and directed the Government to consider the
cases of all those persons who had completed three years or more in the light
of the above direction for absorption in those supernumerary posts and promoted
under para 191 of the Police Officer Manual. In respect of other Sub-Inspector
covered under the said para 191 who had not completed three years of service,
the reversion stood upheld.
appellant herein claims that he was promoted temporarily in February 1976 as a
Sub-Inspector and was appointed on that premise and that he had been continuing
in that post till he was reverted on May, 1983. It would appear that pending
appeal, the appeal, obviously, must have retired from service. However, if the
case of the appellant had been considered in the light of the direction issued
by this Court, no further action would have been needed. If the Government did
not consider his case since the appeal was pending, it is now for the
Government to consider his case in accordance with rules for temporary
promotion and confirmation in on of the 1300 supernumerary posts created by the
Government by the aforesaid order dated 19th April 1985 passed by this Court,
and to pass appropriate in that behalf.
appeal is accordingly disposed of. No costs.
